Artrain's New Wheels

 

continued

In December, CriticCar was awarded a $45,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. As far as a permanent funding model goes, "we're not there yet," says Polich. "We're working on it."

Meanwhile, Conlin is thinking about a smartphone app that will take the be-your-own-critic idea "to a whole new level-people being able to record their own reviews, using our technology to create mini-reels. You could interview friends listening to a band or visiting a museum."

They're also talking about expanding CriticCar to other cities. "For instance, we're thinking it would be fun to try it in Ann Arbor," says Conlin. "I could see that that would be the next place to try it."    (end of article)
